Volkswagen AG reportedly has temporarily shut down its Belgium manufacturing plant because of a strike by Johnson Controls Inc. workers, who are protesting the planned closure of their plant and blocked the entrance to the VW facility. VW says it could lose between €1 million ($949,000) to €2 million ($1.9 million) daily as the shutdown continues. The plant has daily output of 1,000 Lupo and Golf models.
